Billy Graham Writes Letter to Iran’s President

American Pastor Saeed Abedini and his family.

Billy Graham wrote a letter to the president of Iran, Hassan Rouhani. He’s asking him to release American Pastor Saeed Abedini from prison. As Billy Graham put it, Abedini “…was in Iran working to build an orphanage when he was arrested and later sentenced to eight years in prison. His situation has been receiving an increasingly high level of attention in the United States. Unfortunately this publicity has been entirely negative for Iran, with the belief that the primary reason for Pastor Abedini’s imprisonment was because of his Christian faith.” (Graham, Letter to Iran’s PresidentBilly Graham Evangelistic Association)

According to his wife, Abedini has been tortured to force him to renounce his faith in Christ and to return to Islam. She also said, he has led over thirty people to Christ since he was put in prison. (Naghmeh Abedini, Persecuted Pastor, Charisma News)

A copy of Billy Graham’s original letter is below.

I guess we’ll see how serious Rouhani is about peace with the West.

Please remember Pastor Saeed Abedini in your prayers.

  1. Thank you for sharing this and may Yehovah free Pastor Saeed!

    But there is hope in regard to the evil of Iran/Persia and the other nations who come up against Israel and her allies:
    Eze 38:4 and I will turn you about, and put hooks into your jaws, and I will bring you forth, and all your army, horses and horsemen, all of them clothed in full armor, a great company with buckler and shield, all of them handling swords;
    Eze 38:5 Persia [IRAN], Cush, and Put with them, all of them with shield and helmet;

    Eze 38:15 You shall come from your place out of the uttermost parts of the north, you, and many peoples with you, all of them riding on horses, a great company and a mighty army;
    Eze 38:16 and you shall come up against my people Israel, as a cloud to cover the land: it shall happen in the latter days, that I will bring you against my land, that the nations may know me, when I shall be sanctified in you, Gog, before their eyes.

    Eze 38:22 With pestilence and with blood will I enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him, and on his hordes, and on the many peoples who are with him, an overflowing shower, and great hailstones, fire, and sulfur.
    Eze 38:23 I will magnify myself, and sanctify myself, and I will make myself known in the eyes of many nations; and they shall know that I am Yahweh.
